    I cant stand Dig Fellas...the guys are just weird to me and the voices annoying the hell out of me.

    As for TV shows, I totally love the Detectorists...its funny and very relevant to our hobby.

    Most the people on Youtube try to hard or just dont know how to be normal, but there are 3-4 I actually look forward to seeing new episodes. Mainly because they actually care about detecting..not just how cleaver they can make the title and how many views the get...THATS the reality of detecting videos these days.

    Hoover Boys is my top choice....JD Varieties is good...Dig that Beep is pretty solid...and there are a few more.

    Great stuff.
    I used to love him in the Office...the OG Dwight lol

    The show is freaking genius and you could tell the writing comes from people that know detecting.

    I've been watching this all week about 4 episode's a night! Funny stuff my only minor gripe is they swing the coils about a foot of the ground. The Simon and Garfunkel jokes are great and now I have that song stuck in my head all day!

    I remember watching one called "American Savage Diggers" or something. It was based on making money, where they would always find thousands of dollars each hunt. Of course I didn't believe any of it, but it was pretty hilarious to watch. I remember once they found a milk jug with a bunch of pennies in it, then they found a key date double eagle mixed in...

    that was originally American digger with the Rastler.

    He wrote for American digger Magazine,
    Then Embarrassed them With the TV Show.
    So he was Forced to Change the name.
    his last name was Savage.

    JD is a click-baiting putz. He lost my interest after posting a super long video with a title that suggested he was considering suicide. Of course he wasn't but you wouldn't know that from the title.
    I'm also not a fan of his videos that mock the plight of the hungry and homeless. These are the ones where he detects areas in order to dig enough clad for a McDouble.

    I just finished season 3 of the Detectorist and it was great! I binged watched 3 seasons in 3 days it was that good. Lot of laughs and I'm sure I'll be quoting it for years. Also just the positive light it displays for the hobby is great as well.

    The CTX is a beast with that 17" coil and I'll admin I didn't know the Arado was a real machine! Also kinda makes me want the collapsible XP deus now ...hmm

    No spoiler but when he finds the tip of that spear I about lost it

    I moved to Pennsylvania in August, 2017. I haven't hooked up my TV. I really don't mind not wasting my time watching the Boob Tube. Especially silly shows like Diggers

    I feel the same way about the SilverSlingers I really wanted to watch their videos for the whites machines, but their is just something about the sound of her voice. I have to watch it in short burst of 30 seconds.
    Trying to rouse the same excitement from the viewers, Bill doesn't cut it.
    His city-boy attitude grinds on my nerves, however, I still watch the bum...!
    I like the stuff found - in anybody's YouTube digging channel......it's a long Winter, ya know....!

    And Silverslingers, I like the glee, the enthusiasim, the lady has...! Besides, Dunkin Doughnuts coffee, before the hunt, is a great idea...! Reminds me........

    I can't say I dislike Bill Ladd.
    As a Person who Metal Detects I Respect his Opinion.

    But as a TV Personality, His Voice & his lack of credibility due to Editors, bug me.

    I doubt either one of them Sound like that when Out Detecting
    without Cameras on them.

    My guess their Voices Rise & Their Enthusiasm Increases Wildly
    On camera.
